Sustainable learning

The SixTwelve project aims to turn community into a renewable resource.


Louis Fowler
The large, dilapidated structure at N.W. 29th and N. Lee, in the heart of the Paseo, was only days away from demolition when it was rescued by Amy Young and James Varnum. In 2010, the pair bought the property, an eight-plex apartment in its former life, with the idea of turning it into a center of community living. Hence, they became the brains behind Project SixTwelve  — a nonprofit named for the street address, 612 N.W. 29th, natch.
